I have a Lewmar windlass on my meridian 341. The chain jammed

Customer Question

I have a Lewmar windlass on my meridian 341. The chain jammed on retrieval this morning and a part broke off. It was the spring loaded leaver on the retrieval side of the windlass. The one on the storage side is still intact. I think it was caused because the chain was twisted.
What is that part and where can I get one quickly? It also bent the bolt that holds it. On the p2marine site it looks like it is the arm kit. It looks like a quick and easy replacement but I want to make sure before I order it. Also, can I limp by without it if I can't get one week..
Thoughts?
Thanks! *****
